I have a 1996 ZR 580 EFI that will idle fine but as soon as i hit the gas it will bog down and die. I've tried the TSS delete and that didn't fix it. Is there anyone that has had this problem and can help? I'm new to Arctic Cat sleds and especially new to EFI. Thank you so much

Is that the battery EFI in 96? They need a really strong battery to function properly. Maybe try a boost off a car and see if that fixes it.

Also that may be a closed ignition. For bypassing the TSS you need to jumper it and not remove the pin like on open ignitions.

I was thinking the TPS as well so now i gotta find specs on what that should OHMN at. Its got a brand new battery in it thats fully charged but i will put a jumper box on it and try that just to rule that out. And i put the jumper wire in the wire harness for the TSS delete so i'm assuming i did it right cause it did start and idle after i did that... Any other sensors that it might be?

generally speaking my 96 efi has been pretty good about flashing codes when something isn't right with a sensor. have you checked the computer for flash codes?? just a thought.

You can do it, there will be a little clear window about the size of a eraser head on the computer. when you turn the switch on it should flash once.... start it up and run it and if the computer gets a incorrect reading from a sensor it will trip a code. It will be long and short flashes count them and post, I have the manual for the 96 efi and can tell you what sensor is acting up from the code.

Oh wow i didn't know that! When i go to the shop tomorrow i will do that and then post what it did. What manual do you have or recommend i get for this sled for future reference? Is a TPS sensor something that can be cleaned with electronic cleaner and fixed or is that something i'd have to just replace? And if so, where would i order one other than through a dealer? Thanks for this info by the way!

You can find a manual on ebay or swap meets. Get the manual for your sled, Mine is for my 96 efi ett. The only sensor that I had a problem with that the computer didn't pick up is the air temp sensor...

Check and see if you have codes, one other suggestion I have is look at your wiring harness where they zip tied it to your fuel rail. When I first got mine 1 wire for the tps and 1 wire for a injector had rubbed thru and was grounding out on the fuel rail....

07-08 Mileage: 1000
06-07 Mileage: 1000
Here are the codes that the ecu can output:

1 flash = Open or short circuit in TPS
2 flashes = Open or short circuit in water temp sensor
3 flashes = Open or short circuit in intake air temp sensor
4 flashes = Open or short circuit in barometric pressure sensor
5 flashes = Injector failure
